answer 2
Kingfisher. You will be pleased with the 13 Ton PowerHorse as it splits 24 to 36 dia logs with a breeze. It has a litter tougher time when trying to split the 20" by 20" hickory fork some 18 inches long - but lifting this log on the powerhorse is just about all I can handle. Anything bigger than 24 inch dia x 18 inch long would be best suited for a verticle splitter where it can be split on ground level as it would weigh in excess of 200 pounds.

A replacement seal kit for the cylinder installed on this log splitter is unavailable. The entire cylinder would require replacing. Replacement cylinders are available through the NorthStar Parts department as they handle parts for the Powerhorse log splitters. Please call 1-800-270-0810 for price and availability.
